This is the perfect accommodation for the Barberton XCM race. Near enough to the starting point, breakfast included and swimming pool to cool down after the race. And Whitey is the perfect host, awesome guy. We'll be back next year.

very nice place.spacious room.very good host friendly and very helpful.the rooms are very neat and tidy.The only issue we had was the curtains are see through so we did not have any privacy.

Whitey, the owner, made us all very welcome. He is a great character and very good company. I understand that the house is about 120 years old, therefore has not got al the latest modern facilities. However, it is very well presented, clean and very hospitable. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed for the weekend for the Barberton MTB race and thoroughly enjoyed it. Whitey is a very welcoming host and made me feel at home. The use of the pool after the race was a pleasure.
